SONG OF PRAISE:

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed

Chorus
Hail to the Lord’s anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!

1. He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free,

To take away transgression,
and rule in equity.

He comes with comfort speedy
to those who suffer wrong,

To help the poor and needy,
and bid the weak be strong.

Chorus
Hail to the Lord’s anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!

2. To give them songs for sighing,
their darkness turn to light,

Whose souls, condemned and dying,
were precious in His sight.

He shall come down like showers
upon the fruitful earth,

Love, joy, and hope, like flowers,
spring in His path to birth.

Chorus
Hail to the Lord’s anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!

3. Kings shall fall down before him
and gold and incense bring

all nations shall adore him,
his praise all people sing.

The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove.

His Name shall stand forever,
his Name to us is Love.

Chorus
Hail to the Lord’s anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!

 


RENEWAL:

CONFESSION OF SIN

Most merciful God,
Whose Son Jesus Christ was tempted in every way, yet without sin,

We confess before you our own sinfulness;
We have hungered after that which does not satisfy;
We have compromised with evil;
We have doubted your power to protect us.
Forgive our lack of faith;
Have mercy on our weakness.

silent confession

Restore in us such trust and love
That we may walk in your ways and delight in doing your will.
We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

PRAYER FOR OUR NEW YOUTH MINISTRY DIRECTOR:

Emily Mosher

 

HEARING GOD’S WORD:

Habbakuk 2:1–4

I will take my stand at my watchpost
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint.

The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith
2 And the Lord answered me:

“Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.
3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
it will surely come; it will not delay.

4 “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
but the righteous shall live by his faith.

 

This is the Word of the Lord

Thanks be to God!

COMMUNION SONG:

Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery

1. Come behold the wondrous mystery
In the dawning of the King
He the theme of heaven’s praises
Robed in frail humanity
In our longing in our darkness
Now the light of life has come
Look to Christ who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us

2. Come behold the wondrous mystery
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living in His suff’ring
Never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam
Come to save the hell-bound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law in Him we stand

3. Come behold the wondrous mystery
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners
Hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption
See the Father’s plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory
Grace unmeasured love untold

4. Come behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could ever restrain Him
Praise the Lord He is alive
What a foretaste of deliv’rance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when He comes

God sends us out in his power

Lift High the Name of Jesus

1. Lift high the name of Jesus
Of Jesus our King
Make known the power of His grace
The beauty of His peace
Remember how His mercy reached
And we cried out to Him
He lifted us to solid ground
To freedom from our sin

Refrain
Oh sing my soul
And tell all He’s done
‘Til the earth and heavens are filled with His glory

2. Lift high the name of Jesus
Of Jesus our Lord
His pow’r in us is greater than
Is greater than this world
To share the reason for our hope
To serve with love and grace
That all who see Him shine through us
Might bring the Father praise

Refrain
Oh sing my soul
And tell all He’s done
‘Til the earth and heavens are filled with His glory

3. Lift high the name of Jesus
Of Jesus our Light
No other name on earth can save
Can raise us a soul to life
He opens up our eyes to see
The harvest He has grown
We labor in His fields of grace
As He leads sinners home

Refrain X2
Oh sing my soul
And tell all He’s done
‘Til the earth and heavens are filled with His glory
